What to do with that bothersome water pipe?

There is a common bond in the Liverpool neighborhood of Galeville. We all deal with a stubby water pipe somewhere in our front yard. My dear wife Karen and I have been letting the rusty little thing just sit there between our walkway and the road. Inside, I seethe a little bit. And notice that…
